When I hear that someone is having a baby, I am so excited that I feel like my body is trying to come out of itself and explode from the excitement I feel!!!!!!!!!!! Planned, unplanned, married, unmarried? I DON'T CARE!!!!!!!!!! YOU ARE HAVING A BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That is really how I am. It is usually better if I hear this type of news through the grapevine so I can have this entirely over the top reaction in private. I am worried that one day if a woman sees my reaction to the news that she is having a baby, she might think I want to steal her baby since I LOVE ALL THE BABIES!!!!!!!! lol. There should be nothing but joy if a woman announces a pregnancy...whether it is her first, fifth, or tenth!
, Glad your appt went well.
That is always nice!
, Good luck at your appt tomorrow! Hope all goes well and you are able to put out that anxiety so you can sleep!
, So, your grass get cut?
, you are hilarious! I am glad your hubby is so supportive!!!!!
Your convo makes me smile.
, I agree that it seems like women's lib kinda erased the value of staying at home. Kinda like... you can choose ANYTHING but JUST that! Also, I feel like children are not valued nearly as much as they should be. They are not a burden!!! They are amazing!!! It's hard, though... cuz I used to be on the other side where I just. didn't. get it. But now... I guess I view the entire situation differently.
, I am sorry about your yesterday.
We have ALLLL been there. I know I have. I try to tell myself I am teaching my children forgiveness and modeling proper apologies in moments/days/(er)weeks(?) like that! I hope today went better. Also, I hate initial appts. I have nothing to talk about and feel like there is not much to do this early. Plus I don't get a dating u/s, so... I pee on a stick and we chat? I mean... ok. lol. My mw texted me yesterday to see when I wanted to meet up. My initial thought was 16 weeks. ha! She said, How about 12? Um, ok. I guess that's alright with me. lol. What will we talk about though?
- How did work rope you into that? What do you do? Are you moving on to another job or no? Good luck on your last days there!
Re: shots during pregnancy - Uh, no thanks. lol. Not my style.
Re: back 2 sleep campaign and other things about parenting that change all the time - Yeah. I put my kids to bed on their bellies generally. I "followed the rules" with my first and she was a HORRIBLE sleeper and ugh. It was terrible for like 3 years. After trying back sleeping with # 2 and dealing with 2 waking kids at night, I just needed some flippin' sleep!! So, I put her on her belly and guess what?! She slept for like 6 hours. Great sleeper. With # 3, I only tried back for a couple of days with no success at actual sleep. Tummy it was. I think you really need to do what works. I co-sleep safely, no pillows for baby, no alcohol/drugs for me, etc. There are no other risk factors for SIDS present. I follow my instincts for every other aspect of parenting... So, I just go with my instincts in this area, too.
Re: weather - It has been hot here for a little while... in the 90s... But - and don't be jealous - the next three days are forecast to somehow be in the LOW 70s! This is amazing and my favorite kind of weather.
Me? I am doing great. 2 days with lessened nausea. I took advice on the symptom thread and started up my supplements again. The only time I am overwhelmingly sick is in the morning hours (haha! morning sickness!) and by the time I have my smoothie (Hope that doesn't make you jealous,
!) and my supplements, I am doing better! Only mild waves of nausea during the day instead of constant! Woo Hoo!
Happy 4th of July Everyone!!!!
